This reliable little Fells Point sushi house has demonstrated impressive consistency and staying power, and we know a few mavens who swear up and down that the sushi here is the best in town. The udon, tempuras, pajun (Korean-style pancakes), and gyoza are all a notch above the norm, too.
Brick Oven Pizza is so proud of its wood-burning stove and old-school baking method that it named itself after it, but you're gonna be all about the almost infinite kinds of pizza you can dream up by combining its 53-plus toppings options. Or just opt for one of its house specialties: go cheesy (the mozzarella, ricotta, provolone, Romano, fontina, and Gorgonzola Lucky 7 White Cheese), go traditional (the mozzarella and fresh basil Margarite Lisa), or just go nutty (the barbecue chicken and shrimp).
For tourists, it's a reliable place to dine in Fells Point and the only place to get one of those eat bertha's mussels bumper stickers. For locals, it's a cozy, homey restaurant and bar, and the only place to get Bertha's mussels, which are still worth a trip.
This Fells Point legend features live music nightly including American roots music, blues, and jazz.
It is the place to hear Baltimore's finest DJs.
Kali's Court is a posh and expensive Mediterranean seafood restaurant that earns stellar marks with its romantic, candlelit interior and its small boutique menu--only a half-dozen or so entrées, appetizers, and salads. The results are exquisite--an albino anchovy salad with fennel, toasted almonds, and black-truffle vinaigrette; a killer of a bouillabaisse with lobster, green-lip mussels, calamari, and seasonal fish. Kali's Court is particularly loved for its grilled whole fish--they helped put bronzini on Baltimore's culinary map--and the dreamy outdoor garden, for which early reservations are a must.
Hard crabs, fried seafood, and massive servings of lasagna at a smoky, friendly, and (very) casual watering hole. Value-conscious specials on Sunday (lasagna or spaghetti), Thursday (ribs), and Wednesday (burgers). Serious karaoke on
weekends with 3,000-plus-title songbook.
Liquid Earth is the place for a shot of wheat grass or a fruit-, veggie-, and vitamin-filled beverage. It is also the home of some of the most heavenly meat-free sandwiches ever to grace our cakeholes. The sacred submarine--crunchy Italian bread stacked high with baked tofu, roasted onions, mushrooms, cheese, pickles, and cherry hots--is so large it usually ends up being lunch and dinner. The meatless muffaletta is another favorite. And Liquid Earth's vegan cheese--which can be substituted for the cow variety on any sandwich--is so creamy you won't believe its dairy free. Just don't hit up Liquid Earth if you're in a hurry; this place is too laid back for rush orders.
Casual dining restaurant whose ever-evolving menu features house specialties such as garlic fries, turkey cobb sandwich, and hearty meatloaf, as well as regional favorites such as Maryland-style crab cakes and crab and artichoke dip. Outdoor dining is available in the heated intimate courtyard or sidewalk seats. The bar at Lulus Off Broadway offers a unique wine list, modern and classic cocktails, and a wide range of premium spirits and beers.

The handsome home of the self-proclaimed world's first Grand Marnier club, this unpretentious Fells Point bar has made itself indispensable by the sheer efforts of its friendly owner and staff, who give personal attention to all comers. The front bar is always crowded with locals, and the hidden back porch attracts large groups of merry friends. The pub grub is pretty swell, too, with an emphasis on home cooking. The meat-loaf dinner and the shepherd's pie are standouts. Club members keep their eyes on the daily specials and pour in for Monday's steak night. The ever-present pooch is Duke, and One-Eyed Mike's truly does pour more Grand Marnier than any other bar around. Downsides: the scant parking, and it's closed on Sunday.
"Premium Sandwiches ...mmmmm Toasty!"
Mexican cuisine specializing in mostly steak and chicken entrees. Friendly service and an extraordinary selection top off the dining experience.
Eclectic cuisine at bargain prices.
Salt Tavern is co-owned by mother-son team Jane and Jason Ambrose. Also serving as Salt’s executive chef, Jason received formal training at the Baltimore Culinary Institute and worked in Philadelphia and Baltimore restaurants before opening Salt. Salt serves unique renditions of classic American dishes, including their famous Duck Fat French Fries, and was named to Baltimore magazine’s “Best Restaurants” list in 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2010. Salt received 4/4 stars from The Baltimore Sun’s food critic, Elizabeth Large.
The downstairs bar is typically filled with Fells Point's finest. Instead, head upstairs, if you can, where the mood is much more serene. This restaurant imported much of its furnishings from Ireland, and it looks smashing, with black-leather banquettes, walls resembling red leather, and upholstered barstools in shades of vermillion and crimson. Try not to fill up on the marvelous Guinness onion soup, topped with Irish cheddar, or the restorative Irish stew, as the sublime shepherd's pie (topped with whipped potatoes) and chicken pot pie (in puff pastry) await.
GOURMET HOT DOGS AND SAUSAGES WITH A MODERN TWIST!
Creative food in a formal dining room with slightly more informal service. Don't miss the woodsy mushroom salad served with udon noodles or the seared monkfish that floats in a carbonara-inspired sauce.
Pub grub served in a friendly atmosphere, with the occasional curveball (e.g. a deep-fried PBJ sandwich).
Just when you thought Fells Point was saturated with noisy, loud taverns, along comes a place that convinces you there's always room for one more. The food here is excellent, and the cushy dining space upstairs (open Thursday through Saturday nights) compensates for the noisy, awkward seating downstairs. Big-ticket items include well-cooked steaks and seafood pasta dishes. Light fare focuses on crafty quesadillas (which are half-price on Mondays), with plenty of vegetarian options. The historic 18th-century building that houses the Waterfront Hotel has been gutted back to its handsome brick skeleton. Check out the bacon-wrapped barbecue shrimp appetizer served on thick slabs of Monterey Jack toast and the excellent, friendly service.
This bright, clean Fells Point diner is open 24 hours during the weekend, making it an ideal place to soak up some of that alcohol you've been pounding back at the neighborhood's bars before you head home. The menu is fairly typical diner food. It offers breakfast all day as well as the usual burgers, sandwiches, and comfort food entrées. Despite the name, the menu's smattering of Greek items don't really impress, but if you stick to the basics you'll do well at Zeus. We like the thick, crunchy, and never greasy fries and the dense carrot cake.
